Pacific Neighborhood Consortium Annual Conference and Joint Meetings

After the very successful 2000 PNC in Berkeley and Stanford, California, 2001 PNC will be held in the dynamic city of Hong Kong on 15-20 January 2001.The Pacific Neighborhood Consortium (PNC) is formed by institutions of higher education on the Pacific Rim. It explores issues of information and technology exchange, interdisciplinary collaboration, and use of technology for cultural studies. The goal is the development of information sharing and exchange to a level that will allow participants to regard themselves not as organizations separated by vast distances, but as residents of a virtual neighborhood.

Topics of the 2001 Conference will include Historical Maps and Manuscripts, Geographic Information Systems, Scholarly Communications and Information Services, Digital Libraries and Archives, Linguistics and Language Information Sciences, and other areas in cultural studies.

2001 PNC will be hosted by City University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology Library, along with Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan, and the California Digital Library.
